I find with all the negativity out there today, I like to start the day looking in the mirror and telling myself a positive intention for my day.
I also know two life-long friends who call each other first thing in the morning to share a wonderful intention with each other.
Whatever way you choose to do it, putting attention to positive thoughts makes them mighty and gives you a powerful start on achieving them!
Here are 25 of my favorite positive intentions
